This year will put the Aries’ leadership skills to the test. Be mindful of how much responsibility you assume during the first quarter of 2018. When March approaches, Mars continues working in your favor. It transits into Sagittarius and ushers in your lucky break. You’ll find a way to finally put those long hours to rest. New opportunities will show you how to succeed with less mental effort.
Helpful resources will allow you to bring closure to outstanding tasks. The relief you feel from releases these responsibilities will create a domino effect. This favorable time will open doors that lead to growth and personal expansion. Dear Aries, when you’re met with these opportunities, you must keep up the momentum.
Be sure that you’re prepared to move as swiftly as you can. You can’t afford any delays, or else you may negatively impact your plans.
By April 18th, Saturn goes retrograde in Sagittarius. The paternal planet always carries heavy lessons when it turns backwards. Since its retrograde will take place in the 9th house, Aries can expect it to impact your luck. The smooth sailing you’ve been experiencing may come to an abrupt halt.
You’ll meet new hurdles but this should not be too great of a challenge. If you choose to strategize and be proactive in your endeavours, you can circumvent the intensity of these tests without a problem.
The only way you’ll lose is if you quit – and the Aries never gives up. Your faithfulness will prove its benefits when Mars transits to Capricorn. This move takes place on May 2nd, setting a refreshing tone for spring. It happens in your 10th house, the governor of your career.
Your efforts will not go unnoticed, no matter how long it takes. You should expect a promotion or some other form of recognition. The ambitious Aries may even be inspired to pioneer a new business. This is a time that encourages you to embark on a new career. With Mars in your corner, there’s nothing that you can’t accomplish.
New responsibilities mean you’ll need to manage new levels of pressure. Mars retrograde on June 27th may present some stressful moments. No matter how committed you are to your new role, nothing is more important than preserving your peace now. Take frequent breaks and don’t be afraid to ask for help whenever it’s needed. Remember Aries, there is a difference between being productive and staying busy.
The last quarter of the year will usher in the need for closure. Saturn returns direct, which helps you complete outstanding projects. Your favor will take a noticeable change when you begin to be repaid for your efforts. Just be mindful of how you divide this newfound wealth and try not to become too careless.
When Jupiter retrogrades at the end of 2018, you must be cautious of potential traps set by your competition. If your projects don’t advance the way you want, just try again. If you persevere, you will witness promising changes as Mars assists your efforts from its transit to Aquarius. You’ll end the year as lucky as you were when it began. Your greatest reward will be an increase in your mental strength.
